Getting the most from your membership @ The Alaska Club

I’ve been a member of the Alaska Club for decades beginning in the late-80s, early-90s. At first I was gung-ho doing step classes and lifting weights at The Alaska Club East (In fact, at 35 I was rock solid, happy and very fit). As I was approaching 60, I made the commitment to myself to get in shape, rather than aging. I saw people much older than me who continued to workout and looked great. I decided I would get myself back on track.

Winter is Coming!

The trees are shedding their gold and the snow is gradually creeping down the mountains. Alaskans are observing animals everywhere kicking into high gear as they ready themselves for a long winter and for the last autumnal rites of mating. People are posting on social media sites of bears foraging in neighborhoods, on heavily frequented trails and simply ambling down roads. Moose are precariously grazing on the Northern Lights Boulevard median, besides the Glenn and Minnesota Boulevard and literally everywhere besides someplace safe. My maternal instinct wants me to urge them away, but with my luck, I’d unwittingly influence them to run into traffic.
